Former U.S. Ambassador to Syria Robert Ford: Iraqi unrest is "not a problem that is going to be solved in one day or one week or one month"

On Tuesday evening, former U.S. Ambassador to Syria Robert Ford joined Anderson Cooper to offer his insights on the ongoing unrest in Iraq.

Calling the situation a national security threat to the United States, Ford noted that it's "not a problem that is going to be solved in one day or one week or one month."

However, despite the logisitical and fundamental challenges, Ford tells Cooper the threat from ISIS simply can't be ignored, as "the problem is actually growing bigger."

Watch the video for more, as Ford explains why military intervention is not the best solution.

    I wonder how long it will take for the US government to realize that the ONLY thing that unites Muslims enough to stop killing eachother, is hating and killing all of us. Clergy will have it no other way, because those that will are easily controlled by those that won't. We can kill off another several thousand soldiers in another foolish attempt to gain their loyalty, or we can realize that the Final Solution is the ONLY solution, in this case, applied to the true Neo-Nazis of our age, instead of their potential victims. World domination by race hatred and ethnic cleansing is the foundation of Muslim culture. The exceptions are worthless because they are dominated and owned by the closest Muslim fanatic in reach. Anyone who doubts this needs to go look at the countless abandoned uniforms in Baghdad.

    The good news is that we have every bit of escalated weaponry needed to crush our enemies. Realize that those who pretend not to be are owned by those who are. We can face up to that fact like adults, or be destroyed by the alternative.

    Bleeding hearts brink sharks.
